MILLOM Coastguard has sent out a public warning to the community about the unpredictable dangers of using blow-up boats and toys at the seaside.

The message comes as the summer approaches and how these types of toys are not recommended at any tide, despite what manufacturers state.

A spokesperson from the Millom Coastguard Rescue Team said: “Blow up boats and toys are great fun in the swimming pool, but we do not recommend their use at the seaside.

"This is because they can easily be blown out to sea."
